DIY Solar Robotic Dual 55 Gallon Composter

video DIY Solar Robotic Dual 55 Gallon Composter
This was a Grant High School Vex robotic team project.   The composter was installed in the school Serenity Garden.   The video gives an introduction to the garden and then discusses the composter in detail.     More information is on my blog post here:

see the mentor design notes that are referenced in the link mentioned in the introduction. You will find detail dimensions, part descriptions and electronic circuits.... plus a full requirements analysis for mechanical and electrical systems.

Thanks. I agree, it would make a nice instructable and that was my original intention when I got the kids involved. I wanted to have them make it but time ran short and most of the key fabricators graduated. So far I haven't received any requests for plans or details which makes me think that its a bit complex for most DIY garden people. Anyway, if anyone has an interest, please contact me and I would be glad to help. Perhaps when I get some time I will post more detailed steps.
This a great project, and incredibly well executed. I like how the drums were elevated. I checked out all of the process shots on your site, they would be excellent for a step-by-step instructable.
